Exciting announcement for new parents

Space joins Parenting Place

Welcoming a brand new little person into your whānau is both wonderful and challenging as you adjust to a whole lot of ‘new’ – new routines, new responsibilities, and a new, precious someone to know and love. 

We are thrilled to announce that the work of Space NZ Trust, an organisation offering quality post-natal support, is being integrated into Parenting Place. This means that Parenting Place can now journey with you and your whānau from the time your pēpē is born – helping you navigate this new and exciting chapter of parenting, and all the chapters after that! We are also delighted to help grow the reach of this amazing support in communities around the country.  

Through weekly facilitated group sessions over 20-35 weeks, the Space for you and your baby helps parents discover ways to understand, support and extend their baby’s learning and development through education, play and facilitated discussions. Topics include sleeping and crying, becoming a parent, establishing attachment, brain development and early experiences, communication and language development, exploration of play, fine and big muscle coordination and socialisation.
